  3. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very young but I like it. But I am sherry cask enthousiastic so this very active cask which gave it lot's to discover in only four years of maturation is a bingo for me.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Had this one in a blind tasting: Pleasant dram, clearly some dark fruits, suggesting an active sherry cask. Pretty alcoholic though, pretty young whisky. But certainly a nice one to experience.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Red fruits, prunes, berries. Pretty some alcohol in the nose. Later on more 'drop', licorice. And some wood.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Pretty strong, dark red fruits, berries, prunes, drying mouthfeel, pretty some alcohol. Licorice as well.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still very strong, dark red fruits, prunes, berries, a somewhat bitter taste now, pretty long. Drying mouthfeel again, licorice.

    Notes based on cask sample drawn right before bottling.
    • Nose
      Big sherry notes, somewhat dry. Lots of fudge and caramel, with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cherries, and even a bit of mint. There’s a whisper of soy sauce, that becomes a whole lot louder with time, transforming it into a much more savoury dram.
    • Taste
      Not as balanced as the nose, this is quite spicy and dry. Plenty of sal ammonia and nutmeg, with hints of burnt caramel, licorice and cough syrup. I’m missing some fruitiness. Adding water brings out more sweetness, but also highlights the dry side of this whisky.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate and drying.
